Deck Building reviews in Pasadena
Practically everything went according to plan. Work commenced on the agreed date, and it took three and a half days. The crew always arrived on time, and kept busy every moment they were here. Every time I would peek out the window or go out back, no one was ever standing around. This was a very well-oiled machine.
The job would have only taken three days but for one glitch. Once the arbor was up, I noticed that the posts were offset in a way that was different from the old arbor. Esthetically it sort of bothered me, but there was nothing in the contract that addressed the issue of how the posts would be aligned. For all intents and purposes the new arbor did look good, and to re-set the posts at this stage seemed like it would be a lot of work. I addressed my concern to
It was the end of the day, and I thought maybe I was just being picky. The new configuration didn't bother my wife, and so I told him I wanted to sleep on it, and would let him know the next morning whether to leave things as they were or not. About an hour later I received a call from
The arbor looks great, the roof no longer slants, and I feel safe sitting on my back patio again. Without qualification, ”
gave price estimates within a $3000 range.
He seemed very knowledgable and experienced as a builder. During his vist for the estimate, he reallly studied our balcony well and
took the time to explain how he would approach doing the work.. He noticed some details other contractors had not mentioned when
they came to give their estimate. Overall, we felt his personality would be the best fit for us to work with. When
estimate, he was upfront in saying he could not give an exact price for the work because it would be dependent upon how much damage the horizontal metals beams had which could not be determined until the old wooden boards were removed. Intially, this made
us feel a little uneasy, but once we thought about it. it made sense to us. In the end, metal damage was not more than what he was
suspecting and the final cost was within what he intially projected. We liked the fact he was a hands on contractor and did a majority
of the work himself, subbing out just the painting and welding.
During the job itself, he always maintained good communication with us in regards to the progress of the work. Their were times
when he would show up later than he initially said he would, but he always callled to let us know the reason he was being delayed.
The project took a little longer to complete than he initially stated, but it did not exceed maximum allowable time on the contract.
The reasons for the minor delays were understandable. For instance,
secure our boards to the metal beams, but it turned out they had to be special ordered from out of state which added a 3-4 day delay
to the project. Lastly, he was very considerate to our out of the ordinary sleep schedule and worked quietly and always cleaned up well
at the end of the day.
Overall we were pleased with our interaction with
